In my opinion, we, the WebKit project as a whole, are not users. It’s the people who are making use of WebKit, building it or testing it or possibly incorporating it into a product, that are the users. I don’t think the WebKit project can accept the terms of the license.

Anyway, if the real question is finding a server to post the fonts on, then I think you just have to satisfy whoever runs the server that they have the right to post them.
